Back in 2012, The Sofa looked at a Prayer booth installed for nervous students at Manchester University*. Well it seems the prayer booth has gone on tour, and is now being installed at Stuttgart Airport in Germany. Perfect for nervous airplane passengers just before take off!
According to premier.org.uk:
A spokesman for Stuttgart Airport’s told Associated Press (AP) its third terminal has a new prayer booth. There are 300 prayers from various religions in 65 different languages available.
Johannes Schumm, the airport’s spokesman, said: “Often, passengers still have a bit of time before their departure at the gate.
“The prayer booth is an offer by the airport’s chaplains to provide a moment of contemplation.”
The former photo booth includes the Christian Lord’s Prayer and American TV preachers on the touch-screen display.
The booth is free of charge and will be available for three months at Stuttgart Airport’s boarding area next to Gate 310.

We one appearing in Manchester a few years ago, and now one in Germany, I wonder if there is just the one Prayer Booth which tours around the place, or if there’s a small army of Prayer Booths around the world?
*In fact I’ve used the photo from Manchester above.
